Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
We have the opportunity, for a limited time, to establish a new generation of 'first speakers' amongst our very young if we utilize the little bit of time we have with our First Speakers well.
Challenges: 
We do not have many First Speakers left, so we need to find ways to Language Nest and maximize language retention and use with larger First Speaker/Language Teacher to language learner ratios. We will have to be diligent not to given into any kind of negativity and to keep our eye on the goal of language transmission.
